History excerpt reprinted from the Cokeburg Diamond Jubilee Celebration BookD
"The town of Cokeburg was established in 1902. Before the name of Cokeburg, it carried different names, including Richard's Valley and Shaft Four. It thrived because of a desire for deep coal mining operations for both foreign markets and the Pittsburgh steel mills. People from many European countries came to work in the mines and search for a better way of life. They came looking for "streets of gold," but found muddy roads instead. They were assigned by nationality to the "patch" and paid $ 2.85 a month in rent. With them they brought to this melting pot a diversity of cultures. The coke ovens which gave Cokeburg its name have all but disappeared, but many originals - both families and houses - remain."
